The sun’s rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. As a general rule, if your shadow is shorter than you are, find a shady spot.
Long-sleeved shirt, pants, a wide-brimmed hat, and sunglasses are good options for protecting your skin and eyes.
Apply a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 30. Don’t forget to reapply approximately every two hours (even on cloudy days) and after swimming or sweating.
Surfaces such as water, snow, and sand can reflect the sun’s rays and increase your chance of sunburn.
Whether it’s from the sun or a tanning bed, ultraviolet (UV) light can cause skin cancer and wrinkling. Opt for a sunless self-tanning product and sunscreen instead.
